If one of John Lewis's 'unnamed competitors' - such as House of Fraser or Debenhams - is running a sale, you can bet John Lewis* will be price-matching it.
It's all part of its "never knowingly undersold" policy and we've found the best way to find these deals is to go to its offers page*, as there are often hidden discounts John Lewis won't always advertise.
Delivery's £3.50 and click and collect (find your nearest*) costs £2, so do bear that in mind if its competitor offers free click and collect as you may be able to get it cheaper there.
It's worth noting that John Lewis only price matches items that are exactly the same as its competitors, and it's always best to do your own price comparisons before you buy.
The MSE new team recently discovered John Lewis is sometimes "knowingly undersold" (read the full story here) - so make sure you inform it if you do see a product you've already bought there cheaper elsewhere and it should issue you a 'price-match refund'.
There are always ways you can save money at John Lewis*, so even if there isn't a cracking deal out there that works for you, don't assume you can't cut your costs further.
Ways to save money at John Lewis include:
- £2 Click & Collect. Save on delivery if you're spending less than £50 by collecting your items from a store (find your nearest*). Orders of £50+ get free delivery, and £30+ orders get free Click & Collect.
- Try haggling. We polled 1,400 MoneySavers to see in which shops they had most success haggling, and John Lewis shoppers had a success rate of 72% - so it's definitely worth a try if you're feeling brave. Read our Haggle on the High Street guide for more haggling tips.
- Shop in the sale. John Lewis has a long history of price-matching its rivals, so watch out when Debenhams or House of Fraser has sales on, as chances are you’ll get similar discounts in John Lewis.
- Check similar retailers, eg, Debenhams, House of Fraser. If you're not committed to buying from John Lewis, check for deals from other department stores such as Debenhams, House of Fraser and Selfridges, where you may find there's a better offer.
- Had a problem with John Lewis? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to John Lewis*.
Latest Expired Deals
Get a £125 John Lewis voucher free with BIG spend
On selected electricals, eg, £299 Dyson fan, or £1,000+ Home/Fashion purchases
If you're planning a substantial home or electrical purchase, such as a new cooker or TV, you may be eligible to claim a free £125 John Lewis e-gift card* when buying online or in one of its stores (find your nearest*). To be eligible, you need to make a qualifying purchase (see ‘How to get it’ below) by 11.59pm on Mon 19 Aug.
Important: You should only use this offer if you were planning to buy one of these big-ish items anyway. Don’t see it as an excuse to overspend and remember the Money Mantras.
How to get it
1. To get the full reward, you need to be a member of its ‘My John Lewis’ loyalty scheme, which is free and instant to join when you sign up* online or in store. If you’d rather not join, you can still get the deal but you’ll only receive a £100 e-gift card and not the full £125.
2. Make a qualifying purchase in store or online at John Lewis*. This means either buying one of 500+ selected electricals (see below), which range in price from £299-£1,000+, or spending at least £1,000 across the Home/Fashion departments in a single transaction (see which categories are included*).
3. You need to wait 40 days after purchase before you can claim your e-gift card online. It will be emailed to you straight away and will be valid for one year on everything sold in stores and online at John Lewis.
Is it worth it?
Let’s be honest, a lot of items at John Lewis are hardly MoneySaving. Yet if you’re planning a big spend, and you want to buy from John Lewis, then for some it’s worth looking at, and it could be a real winner.
Just make sure you’ve done a solid price comparison (see our Online Shopping Tips) to be certain John Lewis is the best place to buy, when you factor in the £125 e-gift card and the fact John Lewis sells many items with an extended guarantee at no extra cost.
Clearly, if your item is more than £125 cheaper elsewhere, this may not be the deal for you. Though even if it's only a bit cheaper elsewhere, if you've definitely no need for a £125 gift card, you might just want to shop where it's cheapest.
What electrical items are included?
In stores, eligible items in the electricals department will be clearly labelled on the shelf, though on the John Lewis website you can find a full list of qualifying items* to be sure what you’re buying is included.
While branded items are rarely cheap, and John Lewis may not always have the cheapest price to begin with, it does have a price-matching policy*, which you may be able to use to haggle its prices down if necessary (see our guide to High Street Haggling).
Here are some examples we spotted on Tue 13 Aug:
John Lewis item Cheapest elsewhere
Dyson personal purifier fan* - £299
£299 at Dyson.co.uk £340 at DonaghyBros.co.uk £684.99 at Costco.co.uk
Dell Inspiron 14" HD 8GB laptop* - £759.95
£759.95 at Intel.co.uk £779 at BootsKitchen Applicances.co.uk
As you can see from the table, some items are cheaper elsewhere, but rarely £125 cheaper - so even if John Lewis won't price match, if you spend the £125 voucher on stuff you need you should end up better off.
John Lewis tells us that there's very good availability on the Dyson fans (the cheapest of the qualifying items), as well as on most of the other electricals.
What to look out for in store
If you're making your purchase in store rather than online, the eligible electrical items will be marked with a blue label. Here's the 'gift card reward' signage to look out for:
Can you get more than one e-gift card?
If you happen to be purchasing qualifying electricals and spending £1,000+ on Home/Fashion you can actually claim two £125 e-gift cards – though you’ll need to make the purchases separately to claim it twice. Though again, don't be tempted to overspend just to get the voucher.

This offer isn't eligible with the purchase of third-party services like Added Care, Kuoni, Beauty Bar and catering outlets.
If you purchase £1,000+ of Home/Fashion items AND one or more of the selected electricals, you'll receive two e-gift cards, as it's one card per offer. Please note: this is only worth doing if you planned on purchasing those items anyway.
You are still eligible for the e-gift card if you pay a deposit of under £1,000 for an item that costs £1,000+ in total.
The e-gift card cannot be spent on the John Lewis Gift List, third-party restaurants and cafes in John Lewis & Partners shops, John Lewis Home Solutions, petrol stations, Welcome Break shops, magazine subscriptions, photo printing or software downloads.
